Both are rather poor fakes. Don't waste your money.

Thanks for the reply and I couldn't agree more! Pointed them out to take a proactive effort to protect the King Collectible community!

Anyone else who spots one, feel free to add on to the Forum thread!

Those are also fakes.

To report them to eBay, on the right side of the auction, right below the "Other Item Info" block, there's a link to report the item. Click that link, then select "Counterfeits and copyright violations" under the Reason for Report drop-down, then select "Bootlegs and counterfeit media" under the Detailed Reason drop-down, then the "Counterfeit autographs" under the Additional Information drop-down. Click the Continue button, and put your reason (I usually say it's a fake signature) under the Brief Description block.

If eBay gets enough complaints about an item, they sometimes will pull the item. Other times (maybe they didn't get enough complaints) the item stays.
